...il faut se placer de prime abord sur le terrain de la langue et la prendre pour norme de toutes les autres manifestations du langage. [de Saussure]

I have been working on the issue of musical semiology, or rather, with semiology as a possible part in a hybrid method for my artistic research project for some time now. The main reason is an article that I am writing together with Stefan Östersjö. In the article we intend to use a semiological model to analyze composer-perfromer interaction.

The way that Eco uses semiology in the examples he brings up in “La struttura assente” feels to like, as a method, semiology would be a very valid choice for me.
